Not every game that hits shelves is guaranteed to be an overnight success. What sounds great on paper, may not translate into instant sales, as is the case with several games this year. We’ve seen some real niche titles, games that attempted to go their own way but failed to capture an audience, while other big budget productions have fallen to the wayside to be tragically forgotten. And the most underrated game of the year is…

We’ve had plenty of sequels as usual this year, but nowhere near as many rule of three games as what 2011 saw. But mixed in with those twos, threes and fours were plenty of new games, ranging from action through to puzzle. But out of all those new intellectual properties, only one of them could be the best, and that brand spankin’ new future franchise is…

It’s hard to not love both gaming and Japanese animation. It’s a part of the gaming culture, something that has found widespread appeal in recent years. Which meant that a crossover of media was inevitable.

Anime and games don’t always make for great experiences, but when they do, fans really benefit. So today, we’re taking a look at five such great games, titles which made us wish that we lived in a 2D world with “Because Eff you” physics and situations.

Launched almost a year ago everywhere else, Catherine was a unique-looking title with sadly no distribution presence here in sunny ol’ SA. That all changed this year when it finally made its way to our shore, as the tale of love, infidelity and talking sheep eventually released.

Good news for South African gamers who like their playtime a little quirkier. Off-the-wall dramatic puzzle platformer Catherine is finally headed to our shores. We already knew that Publisher Deep Silver would be bringing Atlus’ game to European territories this year - but thanks to Deep silver’s local distributor Apex Interactive, we’ve gotten confirmation that it’ll actually be available locally.

People often complain that puzzle games are overly complicated or to hard but generally they manage to get on with it after searching Google for a few clues or asking their friends to help. What doesn’t happen often is that the developer in question comes out and agrees that the game is actually too hard and that it will patch it to make it easier.

I’ve never been to taken with the weird Japanese pop culture and you would never have found me watching some Japanese anime in Japanese to experience the true nature or whatever the reason is that people use. But for some reason I am completely taken in with these trailers for the upcoming game, of sorts, Catherine. It’s just so bizarrely weird and wacky I can’t look away, it’s like a car crash I guess but one where all the super models survived uninjured which makes it pretty to look at. It makes no sense, take a look.

Every time the gaming industry is looking nice and orderly the Japanese decide to invade and release a trailer which is going to give me nightmares or something.

I have absolutely no idea what is going on in this trailer but there is a baby, naked ladies, sheep, sexual imagery and screaming...

While I am disturbed right now I have to admit I would love to actually play whatever this is, just so that I can save on my weekly LSD bill.Catherine is coming to a PS3 and Xbox 360 near you soon (if you live in Japan that is)
